    Hi..has anyone on the forum checked valve clearances and made adjustments? The service interval says check every 4000 kms, but i would like to know if any of the members have had experience on valve maintenance and the likely interval when you would need to get it serious attention. My bike has done 12K kms and is probably due for a valve check. Further, any reliable mechanic in bangalore? I am doing most of the maintenance of the basic maintenance myself such as brake pad replacement, oil change, etc but would probably appreciate some expert help. Cheers..Amar

    I want to get mine done too, its been 35K Kms. but you need shims to reset the valve clearance, Shims are not available (No surprise !!) & you do not know the height of the shims needed until you open up the valves & find the extent of clearance resetting needed.

    You can get to Dr Irshad at 9886796809. His Garage is en route down Hotel Harsha Circle Near shivaji nagar bust stop, down the (elgin?) theater, before you cross the big gutter bridge take a right. He is good but difficult to get appointment & Very expensive (like 3.5K Average that's why I call him Dr) + have to put up with late working hours & smoking while u r their & he works on your bike.

    My Office is very close to this place, give me a buzz if you plan to visit him (my cell: 98458-44875)

    Cheers
    Sunil

    I spoke to him about the shimming the values last week, he said - "To do that I need to remove the engine and then work on it for a week.". A weeks time from him is HARD to get

    EDIT: hope I didnt confuse you ppl, Checking the valve clearance he does every alternate service.

    You could also try Harsha @ 080-26766178
    His garage is near Basavangudi. He works on my Aquila and GD76's Comet
    Pretty good. Although he too might want you to get all the required spares before he does anything on your bike.

    Yupp, hes got a blue 929 wih yoshimura exhausts!! Sounds wicked !!!!

    He does a thorough job. The carb sync for my bike was done properly for the first time by him. Everyone messed up something or the other ...
    He cant help with the spares though, you'll hv to source them yourself.

    Thanks hisunil. I have been following your exploits on the comet, especially the ladakh trip and very impressed by your dedication and energy. great stuff. I recently changed the air filter and spark plugs and the engine note has become LOUD. definitely something wrong. I will call the honorable Dr. and fix an appointment in the coming weeks. I think we can get the shims (if required) from Richard right? I bought a bunch of spares in australia on my last trip, but not the shims. couldnt get clutch plates either. They act up once in a while. Cheers! we should have a comet owners beer session one of these evening. I normally do a sunday ride to nandi hills (i live in whitefield), maybe we can sync up? of course i gotta fix my bike first.
